He promotes Role Modelling:
The vacuum of role models in South Africa cannot be disputed; it is a sad reality that some individuals that young people see as role models, do not give open opinions on issues of importance and substance. Active role modelling influences action and stimulates young people to strive to uncover their true potential and overcome their weakness. We need to impress upon our young people, that; resilience, commitment and perseverance does lead to recognition.
